Fermented Foods

Traditional Food Preparation:

Before the era of refrigeration, fermentation was used extensively in traditional societies to preserve foods.  Fermentation also improves vitamin content and makes foods easier to digest.  Cultures all around the world developed fermented foods unique to their region.

The Eugene Chapter, Weston A. Price Foundation has a special fondness for fermented foods.  We have been teaching fermented foods classes since 2007.  That year we also created the Kraut Pounder as a fund raiser for our chapter.
